Otolaryngology can be a difficult word to say, but it is the traditional term for the medical specialty that deals with diseases of the ears, nose, and throat. Otolaryngologists (or ENTs for short) specialize in performing complex surgeries to treat a variety of health concerns arising throughout the head & neck region.This includes nose and sinus conditions, disorders of the ears and hearing, speech, voice, or swallowing disorders, and even cancers of the head & neck. Otolaryngologists also provide reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the face.
